Our Full GI Panel is a comprehensive screening option that combines the power of our Comprehensive Stool Analysis (CSA) and Swab Culture tests. This panel is highly recommended for individuals experiencing gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms.
Our comprehensive analysis delves into the world of intestinal parasites, covering a wide range of species including (Protozoa, Trematodes,Tapeworms, Nematodes), sourced from all seven continents. Additionally, we examine other intestinal organisms such as Candida, yeast, and various fungi. Our meticulous assessment includes an analysis of essential bio-indicators like red and white blood cells, mucus, fatty acid crystals, starch granules, undigested tissue, beneficial bacteria, epithelial cells, pollen, and charcot-leyden crystals. Gain invaluable insights into your digestive health through our in-depth analysis of intestinal parasites and related organisms.
The Swab Culture test provides comprehensive culturing and analysis of bacterial and fungal infections, delivering precise sensitivity and resistance results. It quantifies positive findings to determine the intensity of the infection accurately. This versatile test allows for culturing samples from various sources, including stool, skin, urine, and other body parts or secretions (excluding blood).
If you have gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms and previously received negative stool tests for parasites, this test is highly recommended due to the similarity of symptoms between pathogenic bacteria and parasitic infections. The testing package is inclusive, and it's important to note that both the swab and CSA components must be sent together to avoid individual test pricing.
